"Marcello Milanese, born on the right side of the Tanaro, just because there was no room in a Mississippi hospitals that summer of 1973."
(Fabio Polvani / Blow Up - September 2011)
For more than 20 years Marcello Milanese lives and plays all colors of Blues, supported by a voice, a powerful guitar and a talented band.
The new record, released in October 2016, entitled "The Rope", collects songs full of contradictions, the Irish folk tradition meets the Mediterranean sounds, the songs, wet of Mexican tequila are framed by electronic sounds and soul, guitars play singularly and like their opposite and voices intertwine as snakes: a musical trip in time and space. 106 (aka Marcello Milanese) a recording project for Rivertale Productions.
The record entitled "Goodnight to the Bucket" is played entirely with a guitar produced by the author himself and called the Helleuja H1: unlike previous work, this CD recovers the darker side of blues roots, always played in Milanese's personal style.
Marcello Milanese in the live show, goes from the ballad to Sun Records rock'n'roll, the blues of Chess in Chicago until the slide of the Delta, with quotes from Tom Waits to Ray Charles, Kelly Joe Phelps Johnny Cash, reinventing songs of his large discography and unpublished.

In 2006 he released Marcello's Blues Maphia "Si Vis Rock'n'roll Parabellum" featuring Jimbo Mathus, the famous guitarist and producer of Clarksdale, Mississippi.
In 2007 with Ivano Zanotti (drummer ), Milansese starts the American tour which lasts until 2009, to present the album "Used" for Pravda Records of Chicago: from New York to Nashville, passing twice at the House of Blues in Chicago, Minneapolis (Deep Blues Festival) and the Hard Rock Cafe in Memphis.
In 2011 he released "Like a wolf in a chicken shack", his first solo album as a one man band, and in 2012 he was asked to join the band Chemako (formed by former Mambo Chicken) presenting the CD (which has the same name) in the biggest festivals and venues in Northern Italy.
The end of 2012 also marks the return to the roots of the music of the devil darker with "Goodnight to the Bucket."
